We have slept in room n° 7 on 8 august 2013, and it has been unforgettable for the lovely atmosphere and gorgeus view on the bay. Tim the owner is charming and very hospitable, and the dining room where you also have a delicious breakfast is a "must" for a glorious stay and awakening !

My wife & I spent our honeymoon here in 1972. Much has changed! The current Oaks really is a 5 star experience in every way. Friendliness without intrusion. Excellent decor & comfortable rooms. The 4 course dinner was fantastic & breakfast a treat. Worth every penny.

We have stayed over a number of years now and every visit is so very good! We are made to feel very special from the time of arrival until departure. There is a wonderful relaxing atmosphere and the service and attention to detail are rare in this day and age. The rooms and furnishings are of high quality and with... More

Fabulous views and fabulous food in the charming village of Porlock. The Oaks Hotel sits on a small hill set just above the village. Tea in the sitting room is a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

This may not be the cheapest establishment in Somerset by a long shot, but it is certainly the most quintessentially English hotel I have had the pleasure of staying in for some time. Foreign visitors, especially Americans, should put this place into your itinerary if you want to experience something many of us were familair with back in teh last... More

We have stayed before so decided to treat ourselves again after all the Christmas festivities. What a good decision! It is just so cosy and friendly and a real tonic. Anne and Tim are always at hand to cater for your every need. Roaring log fires greet you and you instantly feel at home. Anne's wonderful cooking forced us out... More

Where else in the world would you have the perfect view of a wonderful coastline for breakfast, sparkling local cuisine for the evening meal, walks of any length in some of Britain's loveliest National Trust protected scenery and every need catered for in the beautifully fitted out bedrooms? If you do not believe me, have a look at the comments... More

From the moment we arrived we knew this hotel was special - the comments in the Guest Book said it all! Our room was spacious and had beautiful antique furniture. The bed was supremely comfortable and the thick fluffy white towels and bathrobes a delight. The fresh fruit and flowers were a nice extra touch. In fact the standard of... More

Tim and Anne Riley run a first class hotel to a very high standard. The hotel is beautifully situated overlooking Porlock and the sea. The rooms are large and beautifully furnished. What impresses most is the standard of presentation and cleanliness. Breakfast is served to your table, which makes a change from the usual hotel serve yourself buffet breakfasts. Will... More
